Hazy golden pour. The nose is softly spicy and fruity. Orange and mango with a little bit of pine as well. Assertive hoppiness - pretty nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazed golden ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with pungent grassy floral hops, with smooth honey. In mouth, a good British IPA with grassy hops, white grapefruits, well made.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy golden orange with average-sized white head. Aroma is big piney hops and mellow grainy malt. Flavour also has assertive resiny/piney hoppiness with understated graininess. Lot of bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a murky orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of resiny hops, fruit, a bit of grain, bready malt and a hint of alcohol. Big hoppy flavour along with some light grain and malt in the back. Big bitter finish. Medium bodied. A really good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a bunch of white head that dissipates slowly and a decent amount of lacing. Smell is straight up fine, with a slight fruit and some caramel sweetness. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first but then gets a really huge bitter hit that almost overwhelms, before giving way to a bitter and sweet aftertaste. Maybe a bit overboard with the hops.
